Apple Pie Recipe

This classic dessert is perfect for any occasion. Here’s what you’ll need to make a delicious homemade apple pie:

Ingredients:

  • Pie crust (homemade or store-bought)
  • Apples (granny smith, honeycrisp, or a mixture)
  • Sugar (granulated white and/or brown)
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter
  • Cornstarch (optional)
  • Lemon juice (optional)
  • Salt
  • Egg (for egg wash, optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the apples: Peel, core, and slice the apples. You can toss them with a bit of lemon juice to prevent browning.
  2. Make the filling: In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples with sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. You can also add a tablespoon of cornstarch to help thicken the filling.
  3. Preheat the oven: Aim for 375°F (190°C).
  4. Prepare the pie crust: If making your own dough, roll out the bottom crust and place it in a pie dish. If using store-bought dough, follow the package instructions for thawing and shaping.
  5. Assemble the pie: Add the apple filling to the bottom crust, mounding it slightly in the center.
  6. Top crust (optional): Roll out the top crust and place it over the filling. Crimp the edges to seal the crust. You can cut slits in the top crust for venting steam.
  7. Egg wash (optional): Brush the top crust with a mixture of egg and water for a golden brown crust.
  8. Bake: Place the pie on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Cool and serve: Let the pie cool completely before slicing and serving. Enjoy warm or at room temperature with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
